precarious. secretary kerry said it bluntly this is a brazen act of aggression of russia. the u.s. just doesn't know whether putin is moving toward a confrontation across ukraine that would challenge the new government in kiev or whether this is really going to be limited more to the areas most strategic to russia in the crimea where the russian fleet is based. as one person said it to me last night, we are really playing this by ear. secretary kerry had strong words about the diplomatic and economic consequences that russia will pay for this action but it's obvious in every statement that's made that the u.s. does not seek, does not want a military challenge to this action. i was told that not a ship is moving in the mediterranean, not have been put on maneuvers that might be seen as provocative. for much the response is diplomatic and perhaps sanctions and economic. >> david, now we understand that americans now understand seemingly that putin does not care what we think, does not care about the language that secretary kerry used yesterday on american television, is it now sort of a counund

of the president's leadership. >> the white house sent john kerry to meet the media this morning. he said russia might be kicked out of the g-8 alliance, we're going to try and isolate russia. lindsay graham on cnn was very critical of president obama. i just wonder, given that there are to be really honest about it limited military options for the u.s., just as when russia went into georgia during the bush presidency, whether it's just too easy for the pundits to say, well, let's grade president obama on how he's doing. >> yeah. i think we're in the stage now where everybody is sitting back and watching what the president is doing so they know how to criticize him. do they criticize him for talking too tough or not talking tough enough? do they criticize him for not taking action or taking action to distract from obamacare? there's going to be -- or from benghazi or whatever it is. there's going to be criticism even though we all pretty much accept that there's not a whole lot that the united states can do here. >> certainly, there will be critics that -- >> i'm not saying there shouldn't be cr
